Scholarships: Opening Doors, Transforming Lives

February 10th, 2017 / Development Com...

Princeton’s financial aid program is one of the most generous in the country. Approximately 3,100 undergraduates—roughly 60 percent of the student body—receive financial aid assistance, thanks in large part to scholarships created by alumni, parents, and friends. These scholarships are at the heart of the University’s need-blind admission and “no-loan” policies. Need-blind admission means that Princeton students learn with—and from—peers of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

April 22nd, 2016 / Development Com...

In his four decades on the Princeton faculty, Ted Taylor earned the admiration of his students and colleagues for his cheerful nature and commitment to rigorous research. Even in retirement, he has continued to support and shape new generations of scientists by establishing the Edward and Virginia Taylor Professorship in Bioorganic Chemistry and the Edward C. Taylor Fellowships for third-year graduate students in chemistry. The fellowships allow Princeton to fund students for three years—a rarity in higher education—freeing them from the need to tie their research interests to grant support.
